December 2006
The annual Isle of Wight bus rally was held this year at Newport Quay on a wonderful late summer's day in October.   On display were a fine selection of Southern
Vectis vehicles particularly Bristols (top).   Also in attendance were vintage cars and a steam lorry (above).   There were several unusual visitors including Shanklins Pony, a representative from the Seaview fleet and a marvellous Commer (below).
